Fines & Overdue Notices


Fines are accumulated when items are returned past their due date and are charged at these rates:
Books, magazines, Audiobooks, Interlibrary loan items and puppets:
$0.10 cents per item per day.
DVDs: $.50 cents per item per day.
Fines are not charged on days the library is closed.
When the total fines on your account are $5.00 or more you will not be able to check out any library materials or use our internet terminals.
You may pay fines with cash or a check made out to the Adrian District Library. We do not accept debit/credit cards as forms of payment.

Handling an Overdue Notice or Bill

If you are signed up for email notifications, overdue notices will be sent electronically. All billing notices are sent in the mail. If you receive a notice or bill please return the item as soon as possible to avoid further charges. If you do not pay your bill within 30 days your account may be sent to a collection agency.
If you need to make payment arrangements for your fines, or you believe you have been billed for an item in error please contact the library. Don't assume a problem will "work itself out."
